Game Guardian is sports protection technology, born from years of blood, sweat, and research.
Founded by Master in Dental technology and prosthetics ( Lucas Lang ) in 2011, Game Guardian began as MouthGuardian - a side hustle to his growing chain of Dentistry Plus dental clinics, and a way for him to help his patients protect their teeth playing sport.
From there, Lucas realised the technology he was working on could protect more than just teeth. He recruited best friend and Australian Olympic Hockey team Strength Coach Mike Vegar to help develop shin guards for the team, and Game Guardian was born.
Since then, Lucas and Mike have travelled globally to meet with the world’s best manufacturers in their quest to create the ultimate protective gear. Game Guardian has now expanded to provide cutting-edge specialised sports protection equipment for a wide variety of codes including Basketball, Soccer, Australian Rules Football, Rugby Union, Hockey and more.
In 2015, a spinoff company HitIQ was created when the Game Guardian team realised they could protect players’ brains as well as their bodies. Adding an Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Computer chip and Bluetooth connectivity to an already world-leading mouth guard meant that brain impacts during sports matches could now be easily measured, reported on and treated.
The HitIQ Nexus A9 mouth guard was born.
This innovative device is changing the game to help prevention, treatment and management across the globe. Since launch, HitIQ has partnered with the Australian Football League, the German Ice Hockey Federation, Scottish Rugby and other major sports leagues across the globe. See more at hitiq.com
